The Cause Of Skin Diseases That Spread Throughout The Body In Children?
Excuse me, my sister was affected by a skin disease until the whole body was found: upfront, armpits, buttocks, was that one of the sufferings of scabies
Hello Muammar Gaddafi,
Scabies or scabies is a skin disease that results from infestation by Sarcoptes scabiei mites. Scabies is transmitted through direct contact with the skin of the patient and contact with items used by the patient (bed linen, furniture, combs, towels, clothing) contained in eggs or adult mites. People who are at risk of scabies are children who live in a dormitory, people who sleep together in one bed with people with scabies, the environment in the population with poor sanitation.
The symptom of scabies is the emergence of initially reddish nodules on the skin accompanied by itching, which is felt most severe at night. The location of the nodules is mainly in the area between the fingers (can be seen a small tunnel of skin where the mites run in it), the buttocks and waist, the genitals, armpits, breasts, soles of the feet and hands, even up to the face and head in some patients .
The diagnosis of scabies can be established from clinical symptoms and the results of a physical examination by a doctor. Investigations such as ink testing and microscopic examination of the results of skin scrapings can help the diagnosis of scabies.
Handling scabies is to wash with hot water all items that have been exposed to patients (especially bed linen), drying and cleaning the bed (in some severe cases even the bed needs to be replaced), not exchanging towels and clothing with people other. Treatment should be done for every family member who experiences the same complaint as your sister. Treatment is given in the form of Permethrin skin cream that is applied to the entire body and allowed to stand for 24 hours and then rinsed. Treatment with permethrin can be repeated after 2 weeks if there are symptoms. In addition to topical medication, the doctor will also give itching medication so that the patient does not continuously scratch the skin so that sores and secondary infections can arise. Generally within 1 week after treatment the patient may feel intense itching, but will gradually disappear.
Please do further tests directly with the doctor to determine whether the skin disease suffered by your sister is really scabies or not. Thus the explanation from me, hopefully useful.
